Domenic Alberga had the other goal for Kitchener (19-9-1-3), which played without Radek Faksa, Matt Puempel, Tobias Rieder, Ryan Murphy, Max Iafrate, Eric Ming, Franky Palazzese and Justin Bailey.

Chris Marchese (12) had the only goal for Windsor (14-13-1-5), which saw its four-game winning streak end.

John Gibson had 33 saves in goal for the win. Jaroslav Pavelka made 34 in a losing cause.

The Spits head out for Saginaw on Saturday for a date with the Spirit, before wrapping up the preholiday portion of their schedule in Sault Ste Marie on Sunday night.
